Written by E.R. on Oct 14, 2019 after counseling with Keith for 6 months on issues concerning family conflicts

Keith is extremely supportive and very attentive. When I stop making appointments he drops me a message, which is very motivating to continue working on myself. He helps me to see the underlying problems and walks me through them. I am very grateful for his support.

It’s amazing how beneficial therapy is. The EMDR sessions with Keith have enabled me to reclaim my power and control over my own life. As a result of my work with Keith I went from too scared and anxious to leave the house with crippling panic, to being able to enjoy walks with my husband in the park, garden and we have even traveled by plane, and train. I’ve been able to leave some toxic relationships that weren’t serving me, and now feel equipped to not only face life but to enjoy the richness and fullness of it. I highly recommend Keith as a counselor and the EMDR sessions.

Keith was very knowledgeable and experienced therapist. At first I was hesitant to open-up but as our sessions went on, I felt more comfortable and trusting in discussing my issues. He is very accommodating, patient and sincerely helpful in answering all my queries. I am extremely grateful that he guided and redirected me towards achieving my goals.
